I'm back...

I'm back at last! I can't tell you guys how good it feels. It's like I've been living someone else's life for the last month. Lol, it wasn't quite that bad... I'm just suffering from extreme scrapping withdraw!!! For everybody thats wondering what kept me so busy during the last 5 to 6 weeks, I'll give you a quick update. We bought a unit that was in serious need of a total make-over and everything happened so quick that there wasn't too much time to think. There were a lot of dust, very early mornings and late nights and too many tradesmen to remember. We are getting to an end now and hopefully the unit will be ready to go on the rental market by Monday next week. I just hope we can find a tenant soon... then we'll be able to relax a bit. All a bit too stressful for me.
Well, my 'boss lady' over at Handmade by Suzanne was all very understanding (Thanks Suzanne!) but its back to bussiness for me now and back to my DT responsibilities (and how I've missed it!!) I've done my first layout for HBS using the brand new Kaisercraft range called 'Hippy Girl'. I love the colours in this range and the printed chipboard and journalling tags are great. The very cute butterfly is from Jenni Bowlin. All products used are available here.

A card made from the left overs. And another Jenni Bowlin butterfly.
I promise I'll be back soon with more to share. I'm also planning on catching up on everybody's blogs by the weekend. Wish me luck!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week and thank you so much for visiting!

So glad to have you back, have missed you! Glad to hear all the renos went well (am sure there will be a LO or two that comes from it) and hope you find a tenant quickly too.
As for your scrapping...gorgeous!!! You always make pps that I think look hard to work with look easy!
Hugs to you! XXX

I just typed up a post and accidentally pressed a key and bam, it disappeared :(. Glad to see that you're able to find some free time again. We have a couple of properties that we rent out so I can understand how much time they can take up!
